dinner wardrobe
Hi Everyone!<BR><BR>Husband and I are going on first cruise in December on the Royal Carribean. I know we have a formal dinner and one semi-formal. What do people usually weary in the dining room on a normal night? Thanks and any other info would be appreciated.<BR><BR>Kaye

There are three categories of dress: formal, informal, and casual. Your &quot;normal&quot; night will be posted as casual.<BR><BR>Informal requires a jacket [no tie] for gentlemen, and dress or slack suit for ladies [dressier shoe, smart resort wear]. <BR><BR>Casual is anything but shorts, jeans and nudity. [Shoes and shirt always required.] Flats, sundresses, blouses, skirts all fine.

Keep in mind you are not expected to be a fashion plate. On our recent Legend 12 day Baltic trip one lady had 22 bags...which was announced to the ship over the PA system on the day of disembarkation.<BR><BR>And I thought 7 dresses, 7 matching purses, 7 matching pairs of shoes, 5 casual shoes, 12 shorts, 10 slacks, 10 sweaters, 13 blouses, 2 coats, 14 bras and 14 sets of other stuff [all of which I schlepped] to be excessive!<BR><BR>

Kaye--Also take a close look at you final documents which should be coming soon. They generally give an example for men and women on suggestions what to wear for each type.<BR>Fanci also gave correct info.<BR>Happy cruising!!

Zach...yes I am a New family arrived in 1690. A square headed Dutchman of good Lutheran stock who worked for what he has. How many basketball teams carry your family name?<BR><BR>And you missed a bet...since I admit I schlepped a lot of ladies luggage, you could have suggested I was a cross dresser.<BR><BR>

What kind of a name is Lew Timberwolves anyway?

Lew Timberwolf Nov 4th, 2002 10:37 AM

Peter...actually, the Timberwolf branch of the family are distant cousins who moved to Minnesota...but they're looking pretty good in their division, eh? Much better than the home boys.<BR>

I thought if I suggested you were a crossdresser, Fodors would have deleted my post. So I didn't, and they deleted my post.
